The Crusaders arrive in Durban to face the Sharks.

The Sharks went to Bloemfontein to fetch their points last week and had to return home as victims rather than victors.

The Crusaders welcome back Richie McCaw while the Sharks welcome back a host of stalwarts. Which will have the greater impact.

ARs: Phillip Bosch (South Africa), Cobus Wessels (South Africa)
TMO: Johann Meuwesen (South Africa)

The Sharks:
15 Stefan Terblanche, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Adrian Jacobs, 12 Riaan Swanepoel, 11 JP Pietersen, 10 Francois Steyn, 9 Rory Kockott, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Keegan Daniel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Johann Muller (captain), 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Deon Carstens.
Replacements:
16 John Smit, 17 Tendai Mtawarira, 18 Albert van den Berg, 19 Jean Deysel, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Monty Dumond, 22 Waylon Murray.

Crusaders:
15 Leon MacDonald, 14 Jared Payne, 13 Tim Bateman, 12 Ryan Crotty, 11 Colin Slade, 10 Stephen Brett, 9 Andy Ellis/Kahn Fotuali’i, 8 Thomas Waldrom, 7 Richie McCaw (captain), 6 Kieran Read, 5 Isaac Ross, 4 Brad Thorn, 3 Bronson Murray, 2 Jason Macdonald, 1 Wyatt Crockett.

  • How badly do we want a bonus point? Should we play more attacking or focus more on defense?

  • Pushover scrum for the sharks.

    lawrence very cleverly asks to check if there was an infringement by the scrummed team in which case it will be a penalty try.

    Crusaders all unbound and offside at the scrum.

  • TRicky decision for the TMO here. Has to decide if Kanko has got the ball down (unlikely) or if it should be a penalty try for the Saders not holding the bind.

  • Shit. The TMO has ruled that the ball was in goal and therefore there is no offside so the Saders are allowed to play it.

  • Sykes!! :mrgreen:

    Lots of soccer dribbling takes play up to the 5m line and it goes into a ruck. I think Saders were blown up for not releasing. Quick tap by Bis goes left and Sykes takes over.

  • Lawrence is having a bit of a shocker at the breakdown – saying that – the Sharks are not committing enough numbers to the breakdown and thats where they are losing it currently.

    There and in the line-outs and the ineffectiveness of their 9 and 10 who cannot get the line away.

    Kanko is also having a disappointing game – or rather let me say, being very ineffective and running laterally more than anything else.

    Frans Steyn’s angles in receiving the ball at 10 is all wrong. He stops any momentum the Sharks build up.

    Also, Rory’s clearing is slow.

  • Need I even say it… You cant play rugby with a 9 and 10 who cant do the basics right, but want to pull all sort of superhero shit on their own.

    The forwards must be pissed that no matter how often they defend the line, 9 and 10 cant kick the ball more than 15 metres to clear the lines, or pass to someone in space.

  • I have also noticed something else.

    With Frans now playing at 10, the Sharks are desperately short of strike runners straigtening the line and running onto the ball at pace.

    A Jaque Fourie type player.

  • Now again.

    If Steyn continues to receive the ball as first receiver standing still he will continue to put his whole backline under pressure and never allow them to cross the advantage line.

    It is way too easy to defend that.

    Agree with you on Lawrence – normally really good, but today he was poor.

    Still, Sharks wouldn’t have won even if Plumtree himself had the whistle.

    I think Frans needs some play time in (drum roll) France.

    Rory needs to watch FDP play… far away from Kings Park.

    Murray was twice as bad as last season, which is saying a lot, but it was a come-back game; I’ll give him another chance and just be content with bemoaning our nitwit halfbacks – Batman and Robin, the heroes of Gotham.

    Oh, and you can expect problems in the lineout if you have a different hooker every week…

    Agree with that; but we have JP and even Murray who are pretty big and quick, but strike runners need to be set up by play-makers (like Adi, or in normal teams, your flyhalf), and its impossible to do that when your 9 is incapable of flat passing, and your 10 cramps his outside backs every @#$*^ time!!! :evil:

    Agreed and I also agree with you how Rory (AND STEYN) can have a look at Du Preez and Steyn (Morne) on how to clear from rucks and first phases where the 10 RUNS ONTO the ball.

    Steyn has his angles all wrong and positions himself in the ‘pocket’ 90% of the time and tries to send his backs away from there…

    Impossible.

    Surely the backline coach should pick up on this?

    I understand your frustration with Rory but most of his passing game is dependent on where the first receiver positions himself.

  • @Morné (Comment 153) :
    I have had serious doubts about Bashford since he began… coached me in cricket waay back, and an awfully nice guy, but when last did the Sharks score structured backline tries regularly? About 3 years ago…

    You are probably right about the positioning of the first receiver, but that is not the only issue with Kockott – his decision-making and directing of the forwards is weak, and even normal passes are missign their mark. I am really not impressed at the moment.

    @Morné (Comment 155) :
    I have never been a big Grant fan, as I think he is a limited player. However, he might be just the kind of non-glory boy that is needed in the crucial 10 position to set up the runners we have amongst the outside backs.

    All of the above being said, I suppose that we should also keep perspective and remember that playing for 4/5 weeks without Ruan AND Deysel was gonna always be hard.

    Hopefully at least one good result will be that Fran realises he is not a 10. :roll:

    I dont know Morne – Steyn’s self-belief let him advance so far so fast – and it quite likely to limit his further progress now; same as Look. He may be too arrogant to accept that he cant cut the mustard there. I hope not though.

    @Morné (Comment 163) :
    Exactly right – does the basics well; not really cut out for the fancy stuff.

    Unbelievable how bad positioning and option-taking can stifle a prodigiously talented backline. If only the Sharks could secure an Aussie backline coach…

  • Heres what i think: the sharks has got a huge problem with their lineouts, steyn has got to move away from flyhalf and never return, all the guys has got to work on their ball handling, that was pathetic. Losing to a strong team is acceptable, IF the ref is up to standard. Enjoy the rest guys and good luck.

    How can you expect consistency if you change it every week.

    He should have played his best:

    Beast, Smit, Jannie most of the time (using the others as impact players) and rotated them every 4th or 5th game as starters (let the subs start with the 1st choice on the bench).

    Exactly two seasons later they have finally undone the shambles Campese created and now are only getting 40pt drubbings…

    Sharks and PLumtree shown up as one trick wonders with no plan B… Plummo has only built on Dick Muir’s ‘counter-attack style’ and hardly improved it… too little work done on skills and backline moves… this is exactly what happened to Wellington under PLummo… he’s a great forwards coach and nothing else…

    No pack that gives away 70kgs will be able to withstand the likes of McCaw, Messam and Waldrom for 80mins… they were awesome… so too the tight five…

    No man management as alluded to all season… a multitude of the Shark’s players could barely swing their arms to pass in the last 10…

    Just a further example of his lack of man management… blind Freddy could see from the run-out that Muller could hardly jog without wincing…

  • Sharks are the only team in the comp other than the Bulls that expect their 9 to play every single game for 70mins plus from start to finish…

  • What happened to the Kiwi coach that Plum brought over to coach the backline?
